Losing a game by one point opens the door for a lot of “if this, then that” talk. Are frustrations with Joe Barry and AJ Dillon valid? Yes.

Do other factors need to be considered when trying to understand how the Packers lost to Atlanta? Absolutely.

If Alexander and Walker come up with interceptions, we are probably praising Barry today for doing enough to win. If Jones is in the lineup, we are probably celebrating a win because he would’ve been able to keep those drives going late in the game.

When you have the youngest roster in the NFL there are going to be a lot of learning moments. The fact that they were in position to be 2-0 after not having some of their key players available speaks to the potential of this team.

Losing is never fun, but Packers fans don’t need to panic after this one.

There are plenty of reasons to be optimistic that the Packers will turn it around in the home opener against the Saints.
